Just Shoes: Where Art, Craft and Fantasy Meet
February 3 - March 16
Just Shoes: Where Art, Craft and Fantasy Meet features more than 70 shoes by 20 artists, selected from a larger collection of fantasy shoes commissioned by Jane Weitzman, wife of the renowned shoe designer. Jane had a vision to create a gallery in their Madison Avenue store windows and she traveled the world to find artists who could help her fulfill her dream. Cobbled together from a surprising array of materials and forms, blending traditional craftsmanship with the unexpected, these shoes exist as artistic one offs. Totally unwearable and joyfully defiant of practical use and anatomy, they exist purely to delight the eye and the imagination.
